take a step back and explain why the story is right. we've got an environment of improving consumer confidence, both domestically, despite the payroll tax hike and around the world. that means there's more demand for luxuries like travel and leisure, ie, cruises. on the other hand, in this industry supply is everything. it's like nordic tankers, too many ships, supply brings down the price of everything. supply of ships when the global economy seemed to be in great shape, the cruise ship builders went crazy. most of the enough capacity hit the market at the worst possible time, much of them coming on at the height of the great recession. during the recession the shipping company slowed down l orders for new ships and now new capacity is decelerating. from 2000 to 2010, the number increased at a 6.6 compound annual growth rate but should increate at only a 3.3% growth rate from 2012 through 2016. there's less new capacity coming on, less supply and that means, yes, s pricing. believe me, the tanker ships wish they were happening. there's still new supply coming on. it's got incredibl

. my accident happened in what should have been the safest of environments yet it just goes to show you can't prevent every gun-related issue and more guns around people isn't necessarily the answer, the nra would suggest. i believe we should focus on those things that are most important, universal background checks, the assault weapons ban and also, elimination of these high capacity gun magazines. this is going to be our focus and i hope we can get something done on this. >> congressman, are you worried that in the ranks democratically that there might be issues because the "wall street journal" talks about the senate side of this and the senate bill, saying the strategy outlined also reflects a growing sense within democratic ranks that some of the president's most ambitious goals, particularly the call for new bans on certain types of military style guns, often described as assault weapons, may be unrealistic. this is according to a reid aide. again, i get back to harry reid really being the key point person to be able to take through feinstein's newly introduced bill and any other
environment. i was looking back at the vote to ban assault weapons in 1994. back then you had 46 republicans who supported that ban. that's a remarkable thing. in this day and age you get 46 republicans to support president obama on anything, even if it was i love cookies day they wouldn't support it. so those republicans are gone. moderate democrats are gone. the pl president knows that in order to get something done in congress he's going to have to centrally be able to push it through whether there's an executive order or the only thing that will pass is something that republicanss can support because republicans are the ones who control congress. at the end of the day here's what i think is somewhat interesting. for republicans in congress these issues, guns and immigration, make them a stronger national party in the future because it helps them do better that mitt romney did very poorly: suburban moderate women voters and hispanics. yet if you're going to be elected as a republican in congress you really are not looking at that group of voters you're more worried about losing a primary

they are supportive of them controlled than they were back in december of 1993. even the environment looks different. even more important than that, it is really that moderate seat held by democrats do not belong to democrats any more. do belong to very conservative republicans. seats that were held by moderate republicans are now held by democrats. that makes the democrats all that much -- that makes the dynamic all that more problematic. if you are a gun owner that it's a certain democratic profile, that makes it more likely that you are actually eight republicans. host: host: you wrote about this. ece. is amy's pi guest: we still have to do it immigration reform. host: biscuit the viewer is involved -- let's get the viewers involved. caller: we should be able to vote on our own gun control and immigration policies. host: what do you mean by that? caller: you can vote whether you want immigration control, yes or no. enforce our laws we already have. the american people can vote. the details can be worked out by congress. host: do you think the electorate moves forward on these issues by voting for
